Another Embarrassing Correction for MSNBC [UPDATED]


MSNBC admits it was “factually wrong” when it aired the above maps which “closely resemble propaganda disseminated by anti-Israel organizations” during an “analysis” piece:

The cable news network has been fighting off criticism after it aired the graphics and analysis, including a map linked to conspiracy groups branded as anti-Semitic, that portrayed Israel as existing on territory expropriated from Palestine.

The graphics garnered criticism from pro-Israel advocates and has now prompted the network to acknowledge that the graphics were highly misleading.

β€œIn an attempt to shed light on the geographic context of the Israeli-Palestinian issue, we aired a map that was factually wrong,” the spokesperson said on Sunday.

Let me fix that for you, MSNBC: “In an attempt to inflame our Progressive viewers with their daily dose of Jew-hatred, we aired a map that was factually wrong. We regret getting called out for it.”

CORRECTION: The use of the word “embarrassing” in the headline implies a fact not in evidence.

We regret the error.
